offices, bank of america, toyota, other companies, too. there's been a class action lawsuit filed against fedex, happened in 2011 and "the wall street journal" says it claims a worker there tried to bring the overcharging up to his superior to let them know this was happening but what's new are the court documents were unsealed this week including these e-mails and in them it shows that this worker wrote this e-mail saying he believes fedex is systematically overcharging customers for residential delivery fees. he said "i have brought this to the attention of many people and no action has been taken to address it." don? >> so don't leave me hanging. what is fedex saying about this? how are they responding? >> fedex is saying the documents they don't tell the entire story, they'll continue to defend the allegations. fedex also noting that customers who have billing issues can get refunds online or call the company. something tells me e-mails aren't going to be enough. plaintiffs will need proof they were overcharged. we'll keep following this and see how all of it plays out. >> appreciate
